The Paper Bag Princess (The Musical!)
I write the humor blog around here. I have children. And I'm a recovering musical theater geek.
So it behooves me to tell you that if you too have a funny bone, a child, and a love for musical theater, there's a show opening next weekend you don't want to miss. And if you don't get your tickets ASAP, you will miss it, because the The Theater Bug is small, and the demand for tickets is big.
The Paper Bag Princess is a musical adaptation of the classic children's book by Robert Munsch, written and directed with great humor and grace by the bountifully talented actress, director, singer, and child whisperer, Cori Laemmel, with musical co-writer, Eric Fritsch. I have read the script, and I have seen a short preview of the play. It is adorable. And FUNNY. Performed by two talented casts of Nashville children, the show opens this Friday. And it's yet another example of the creative magic that has transformed our city into a nationally recognized Artistic Hotbed of Supercool Awesome.
You can purchase tickets online (recommended) or at the door (if there are any left). Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for children.

It was just an average Saturday morning back in April 2009 when Kelly Jent's life changed forever. Kelly, a Springfield resident and 33-year-old mother of three, was helping a friend with a yard sale when she suddenly felt the uncontrollable urge to go to the bathroom.
